<p>Rescue system has a lot of options , but most of them can only be set at boot time, first idea is too provide a way to configure them while the system is running.<p>

some ideas

  • user friendly interface (dialog box) -> ALREADY AVAILABLE in linuxrc, need some changes ?
  • autoprobe modules with blacklist -> ALREADY AVAILABLE in linuxrc at boot time
  • localisation -> ALREADY AVAILABLE in linuxrc
  • keyboard layout -> ALREADY AVAILABLE in linuxrc
  • easy mount scripts
  • VLAN support -> pull request

vlan vlanid

  • auto select external mirror and path to install system -> pull request

auto install


stage2 with more features

  • short documentation available
  • provide more tools: ddrescue, partimage, Common FS tools (FS supported in SLES11), test disk, easy mount scripts, FS Archiver, Clone tools, rsync
  • RPM support: full read/write RPM support
  • share files over network (samba, nfs)
  • network tools: ssh server, nslookup, proxy support
  • get hardware information
